Bob,

I have had many of these for quite awhile, just have not found the time to post them. After Jerin's visit yesterday, I started going through them and didn't realize how many are not posted...get ready for a bunch more in the next few days...

I don't know if my heart can take it !!!

But I could die happy.

Remember the old days when someone died they put coins on their eyes?

I'm having matching Bully's placed on my eyes :-)
